“Summer Shower” by Ami Kaye


I walk out to the open porch,
something cold falls on my nose- plop!
-it is a rain drop

The bright sunlight dims with awe
to see the clouds swell up so fast
-and mist drift past

Dry parched earth receives the rain,
greedy as the ground it hits
-and welcomes it

A silver drop falls in the flower;
its petals in a whirl
-glistens like a pearl

I bend my head, look through a pearl,
see a delicate rainbow stretched
-a whole world etched

Trickling down upon my head
from conduits of a leafy tower
-a summer shower
